There will be a workshop on Longleaf Pine Forest Restoration and Management held in Washington County on May 14, 2014. This will be an excellent opportunity for Panhandle landowners to learn more about the possibilities of growing Longleaf Pine on their property. Longleaf pine has many favorable characteristics for landowners with long-term, multiple-use land management objectives. Longleaf pine yields a large proportion of high value solid wood products, is adapted to fire, and is resistant to many insects and diseases. Longleaf pine forests provide ideal habitat for a diverse array of plants and animals. The goal of the workshop is to educate private landowners about longleaf pine habitat management and restoration efforts. This event is a cooperative endeavor by a variety of state, regional, and national agencies and is being advertised throughout the state. Interested parties should register quickly as space is limited.
